Best Optometrist Los Angeles 2012 

Dr. Adam Goldstone

Tarzana optometrist Dr. Adam Goldstone works all week plus Saturdays, and if you're the type who needs special attention, this laid-back, affable expert is the guy to see. Recent customers included a woman who came to him because she could not stand the slightly crooked way her glasses always sat on her asymmetrical face; a guy who ordered a rosy-red dark tint for his sunglasses after Dr. Goldstone discussed with him at length the visual effects of each lens-tint color choice; and a guy who asked the good doctor to fit prescription lenses into his new thrift-store find — cool, horn-rimmed glasses he'd rescued from a basket of throw-away specs at Goodwill. This small shop is friendlier and less pushy than the chains and glitzier eyewear boutiques, and there is never any pressure to buy. 18625 1/2 Ventura Blvd., Tarzana. (818) 708-2010, adamgoldstoneod.com.

  • Karaoke Pole Dancing @ The Viper Room
    Sam's Hofbrau presented "Sam Tripoli's Rock N Pole Championship" this week at The Viper Room.

Entertainment included a special appearance by porn star Tera Patrick, serving as judge, and performing a burlesque number. All photos by Nanette Gonzales.
  • The Best L.A. Costumes of 2014 (So Far)
    It's no secret that SoCal knows what it's doing when it comes to make-up and costume design, (hello, Hollywood!) so it makes sense that we would also have the world's best cosplay. Here are our picks for the best of 2014 (so far).
  • Daw Yee: Mission of Burma
    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.
